Kaiser Chiefs have revealed details of a brand new single which takes aim at "rude, cruel people" who use Twitter.

The Leeds band are set to release 'On The Run' - which did not appear on their recent album 'The Future Is Medieval' - in January.

Drummer and songwriter Nick Hodgson told the Daily Star that the track is a "rant against modern society" and was recorded in four days.

He commented:

I’m on the run from the world really. There are too many opinions out there, like on Twitter. It’s full of rude, cruel people.


Hodgson also spoke of the struggles of writing 25 songs for their last album, which allowed fans to choose their own tracklisting.

"I was constantly writing for a year, every day as soon as I got up," he said. "Even going to the bathroom, I was thinking of words, forcing them to come, until my mind was: ‘Aargh'."

Last month, the band's frontman Ricky Wilson expressed concerns about the future of guitar bands, claiming that it may not be a "viable career" for musicians in the future.

Kaiser Chiefs are set to play a one-off London show next month as part of the XFM Winter Wonderland gigs. They will perform at O2 Academy Brixton along with the likes of The Maccabees, Miles Kane and Tribes on December 14.
